Congratulations oneguy… those “little guys” look awfully good to me!!! Moreover, you spent the weekend outdoors enjoying the hobby and obviously having success with your Gold Monster. It doesn’t get any better than that IMO. 

WTG :cool:

Jim.

Your welcome . Hopefully we will pass over some bigger pieces of gold than the little ones we got. My ten pieces of gold only came to 16 grains. They are now sitting in acid.

Oneguy & Goldseeker 4000,

It was great meeting you and talking gold out in the hills, and WTG on the nugget finds; you guys are deadly with that Monster.

Cheers

Lunk, it was nice meeting you and Steve as well. After you left and I ate dinner I got out my torch and hydro shocked those rocks to get the gold out. Something to do back at camp. I was too wiped out to want to go detecting any more sat evening. I will be glad when my other spots open up from the snow load. If you are up for a trip to Avon let me know. Should  be another two or three weeks. That will give me time to replace my entire suspension on my tacoma.

Thanx for the words guys!!!!!

It was also nice meeting you, Steve, and GS4000.  I'm sure we'll cross paths again both here and out in the brush.  I learned a LOT from all you guys and I really appreciate it!!!!

GS4000..... NICE job squeezing those bits from that clay/rock......  Once again, had a blast and learned a bunch....THANKS!!!!

So here is the gold I got last weekend after an acid bath. I think they could use a second bath as I think the acid tends to reach a maximum degree of cleaning when it turns orange. These were in acid for a couple days.

      Had another good month hunting the low tide wet sand slopes at a few local beaches. Some large surf eroded out a few areas, lots of black sand and lots of targets! Spent half the time in "All-Metal" and half in "Tone Mode".  For me, tone mode comes in very handy when weeding out those annoying pesky tent stakes when there is an abundance of them on the beach. I ran stock settings for tone mode and it worked out great at one of the beaches I was working that was littered with tent stakes!  The find of the month was a nice 14k LeVian ring, the surprise find of the month was another gold tooth crown, which makes my 3rd for the year! Acid tested it and confirmed it's 18k. I see Compass found one recently too. You would think the cremation process would completely melt the crowns into blobs, I guess the heat doesn't reach that point? Anyway it was a fun month. I went out recently after the oil spill for a night time negative low tide hunt, beaches were pretty sanded in unfortunately. I did encounter some tar blobs on the beach, but I always wear muck boots when hunting the wet sand anyway so I had no issues with oil on my feet. I was surprised to see a surfer out in the night time waters and also someone walking their dog on the shore..
      So totals for the month were:
      10k - 2.1 grams
      14k - 15.7 grams
      18k Dental Gold - 4.1 grams
      925 - 3.65 oz
      Thanks for looking, GL & HH out there!

      A friend is here helping me while I recover from arm surgery…  I’m running the Kubota and we’re pushing in my front yard… within 100’ of my front door.  Well done Mark…
